I wanted to like this place - the waitress was lovely and the reviews so far had been good. But the food really was not. The lobster bisque was the best of the batch, but did have some chewy pieces in it, like ground sausage, which could not be identified. The chicken they listed as a house specialty was pounded so thin and cooked so firmly that it was difficult to eat, or even taste, and was topped with an oddly flavored hollandaise. Rolls brought before dinner were very hard and not easy to eat. Pasta also so-so. Would not return.

Delicious food, great service, pleasant ambiance. Really good Italian food. Worth finding it, in the hidden alley location.

Probably my overall favorite restaurant in the ENTIRE greater Wenatchee area (it's actually in Leavenworth)! The chef does a fabulous job with seasoning his creations; i have never had a dish i didn't love there. The Salmon bernais is exquisite! Sometimes has live music (mostly classical). Great service.

Great food, excellent service, quaint atmosphere, and very quiet. My only complaint was the stench of all the garbage cans in front of the building. We wanted to eat outside but deemed it to be a bad idea.
